Passport to Connecticut Libraries  Returns April 2-30, 2018

The Brainerd Memorial Library is happy to again be a part of Passport to Connecticut Libraries!  Your library card opens the world to you through books, audio books, music CDs and DVDs.  Now let your library card open the doors of Connecticut libraries by participating in the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program!

Over one hundred Connecticut libraries are proud to participate in the Connecticut Library Association’s Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program. To celebrate National Library Week during April, the Passport to Connecticut Libraries Program invites you to visit all of the participating Connecticut public libraries. Each library has its own architecture, vibe and collection to explore and browse! The program is open to adults and children, and the hope is that it encourages residents to explore the amazing diversity of our public libraries.  And be sure to visit our blog partner at www.thelibraryhop.com, which will feature profiles of selected libraries throughout the state.

To participate, visit the Brainerd Library to pick up your Passport. We will stamp it and give you a token gift to get you started. Then, take your Passport along as you visit other participating libraries. At each visit, you must show your library card, and then the library will stamp your passport and give you another small gift.

If you visit at least five participating libraries and return your passport to a participating library by May 7th, you will be entered into one state-wide drawing for a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card for adults (18 and up), and a $100 Visa gift card for children (under 18). This is a state-wide contest where four winners will be selected: one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who visited at least five libraries, and one adult and one child from a random drawing from all who visited the most libraries.

For more details and a full list of participating libraries, call 860-345-2204 or visit www.brainerdlibrary.org.
